mendoza for their work on this issue and their presentation. thank you commissioner fewer for following up on the success rates of the credit recovery program. it's incredibly important that as requirements are increased that the district can provide resources to support them. their requirements are important to getting san francisco's young people to college, but we can't set them up to fail. i'm glad that the counselors will be having the meetings and i'm a little concerned that they won't do it by november 19th, seeing that we're in the midst of college application season. but hopefully, that will happen before the next school year. at the moment our joint education committee, which works with the student advisory council is working on a resolution addressing the achievement gap in san francisco at-large because we feel like this isn't just an issue of this one-time increase in requirements. if you look at the numbers, there are incredible disparities between communities and we think there needs to be long-term solutions to address the issues in our city's educational system. thank you

'm the chair of the committee. we're joined by choice president chiu, commissioner hydra mendoza, commissioner sandra lee fewer. my understanding is that the other members of committee are en route. the clerk of the committee today is victor young and we want to thank the following members of sfgovtv staff, michael freeman and jennifer lowe for covering the meeting and we thank the members of the public and staff who are at the meeting today. with that, mr. clerk, if you could please call i. item no. 1. >> hearing on the implementation of a-g course requirements in san francisco unified school district high schools. thank you very much. and this is an item, hearing request that was actually requested initially by supervisor carmen chu. commissioner fewer, do you want to say something? >> no. >> thank you. and i will now turn it to chris of the san francisco unified school district and we will be hearing from the school district shortly. >> thank you. i am the director of development and local government relations. we have one speaker from san francisco unified school district, dr. janet s
that we file this item, if we could have a motion by commissioner fewer. seconded by commissioner mendoza. if we can do that without objection. i will certainly bring this issue back and i think it makes sense for us to do so after -- sometime after the november election when we have a better sense of where things are. but i think that even if the measures pass, i think there is a lot more that the city has to do. and, by the way, one of the things that i am interested in doing and will be doing in the next couple of weeks is introducing a motion to expand the make-up of this committee or least to consider including city college. because i don't think we can have a full picture of how we're educating young people in the city without having city college at the table. so i look forward to that conversation. the last point that i will make is that i do want to acknowledge mr. hoover lydell, who is in the audience and the reason i want to acknowledge him because he has been an institution in the school district for many, many years. when i started as a lawyer working on the consent decree,
at city hall. it is chaired by supervisor campos and chui and commissioner mendoza and myself and we have one item and that is our ag requirements. >> i believe that there is a budget committee meeting on november the 8th. >> president yee, we are waiting for confirmation of that meeting, i believe pending a question about commissioner wynn's availability and the regular meeting of the budget and business services committee would fall on wednesday, november 7th. we have requested consideration of moving that meeting one day later to thursday november 8th, and i believe commissioner wynns is reresearching her ability and rewill finalize it. >> thank you, we are finished with this section? >> commissioner? >> yes, go ahead. >> i want to announce that the rules committee meeting. the october rules committee meeting was canceled because we need to get the rest of the elections to get the report from the advocates in sacramento, because we are not really ready with the recommendations on the policy work of our staff working with the fda, but we also we schedule that meeting for november the 14
